siblingship (day 109)

SEESTAR was home for a couple hours yesterday and it was so much fun :)

(I guess I’m technically cheating since these were taken yesterday.)

more of what makes you happy (day 99)

(are we seriously almost in triple digits for this year?!)

IMG_2591

This morning I went to the market, pre-shower, sans makeup. Got the essentials (eggs + goat cheese) and some indulgences (cocoa pebbles + peach flavored coconut water)… And a spontaneous bouquet of flowers. Not sure what these are or how long they’ll last, but they’re pretty and they make my room smell heavenly. (If anyone knows the name of these, let me know.)

Of course I should buy flowers for myself. The lack of rain and intense heat isn’t helping the rose situation in our front yard. So I resort to buying floral arrangements because it’s important to always have fresh flowers by your bedside.

Happy Wednesday, ya’ll.

the tension of opposites

“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted. A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.”

A friend is listening to the audio version of Tuesdays with Morrie, so last night, at some dark hour, I was inspired to flip through my copy. That quote was on the first page I opened to.

Have you ever had something that you just can’t get enough of? Like a toy that you spend hours playing with, but when you’re told it’s time to put it away, you just don’t want to. Because even though you had hours of enjoyment and smiles, somehow it’s never enough.

I feel like that. Somewhere in the middle.

I get more than a fair share of happiness (as if it’s something you can max out on…) from this one thing, but it’s never enough. I still want more.

sibling spring break

well, hello there, little neglected blog! Last week was amazing because brother bear and seestar were home for spring break. We did a LOT of cool things and it was exhausting :) We saw the Bodies Exhibit, ate at Pink’s, went to the beach, went on bike rides, had a movie night with the whole family- watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and went to Disneyland. Mixed in with all that was a lot of delicious food- cronuts, Pita Hot, bread bowls, pasta, carrot cake… the list goes on. Oy. Definitely regretting some of those decisions now…

Anyway. Here’s a plethora of pictures. Enjoy.

someone thought it would be a good idea to have a pepperoncini eating contest…

Spirit of Imagination- one of my favorite things to see at Disneyland :)

Now it’s back to reality and that 8 to 6 work grind.
